    1. For the filing: In a medium bowl, mix together coconut, sugar and ricotta cheese to form a dough. Divide into 16 portions.
    2. Roll each portion into a ball, pressing one almond each into the centre of each; cool in freezer for 20 minutes.
    3. Place the white chocolate in a large stainless steel bowl and set over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt. While the chocolate is melting, stir in the cream. Use a cocktail stick or fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate mixture.
    4. Arrange coated truffles on a platter. Sprinkle remaining coconut over the truffles while the chocolate is still melted. Cool in refrigerator until the chocolate coating hardens.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Used a little less cream for the ganache (choc/cream mix) as I found it a littel runny.  -  15 Apr 2009
